Magic Kingdom is celebrating the 90th Anniversary of Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse in a BIG WAY with Mickey and Minnie’s Surprise Celebration! The party kicked off in January and will run through September 30, 2019.
And the emphasis is on the surprise, because Magic Kingdom is surprising us with new treats throughout the year as part of the celebration! Today brings a new Waffle Sundae, new Whoopie Pies, and an adorable new Popcorn Bucket… so let’s dig in!
Mickey and MINNIE (!!!) Waffle Sundae
Stop by Sleepy Hollow Refreshments in Liberty Square to find the Mickey and Minnie Waffle Sundae!
Now, we’re (happily) used to seeing Mickey Waffles around Disney World… but Minnie Waffles?! This really is a cause for celebration!
This sundae — according to the sign — features Mickey and Minnie-shaped waffles, a scoop of vanilla ice cream, chocolate sauce, whipped cream, sprinkles, and a cherry. However! On our FIRST visit (there’s more of a story to come here…), we received TWO Minnie Waffles, and no Mickey Waffle.
But later in the day we stopped by Sleepy Hollow again. You see, the Sundae comes with chocolate sauce automatically. But we just couldn’t get enough of Minnie’s cute face, so we wanted you to see it in full, without the chocolate sauce.
And this time, Mickey came along for the fun (in the form of a Mickey Waffle, of course)! Warm waffles served in combination with cool ice cream and a huge gob of whipped cream is always tasty and fun… but especially so now that the Minnie Waffle has arrived!
I wonder where she’ll spring up next?
Mickey and Minnie Whoopie Pies
At Columbia Harbour House, we received both together for $4.99. (They’re also designated as a Disney Dining Plan snack credit.)
Each is a red velvet whoopie pie filled with cream cheese icing then topped off with either Mickey shorts or Minnie’s bow made out of chocolate.
The Red Velvet flavor is pretty intense!
And the cream cheese icing center and the chocolate toppings melted really quickly.
These may have been just freshly prepared and the cakes a bit too warm. But, in any case, we preferred the flavors of the Frog Prince Whoopie Pie which you can find — at least for the next few days — at Liberty Square Market for Mardi Gras.
Mickey’s Birthday Popcorn Bucket
We also spotted this new celebratory Mickey’s Birthday-themed Refillable Popcorn Bucket!
Mickey’s celebrating his birthday…
… with Pluto and his favorite gal!
Part of the fun of Mickey and Minnie’s Surprise Celebration is that the treats are going to change throughout the celebration, which lasts until September 30th. Our understanding was that the Mickey Confetti Pretzel from Mickey’s 90th Birthday celebration weekend was also supposed to make a return today to Tortuga Tavern, along with two new Minnie-themed Sundaes at the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor. However, we were informed by Cast Members at both locations that those treats were — at press time — unavailable.
But we’re never gone from Magic Kingdom for too long, so — as always — we’ll let you know what new treats we spot on our next trip!
And so the party continues!
